Ontario Premier Announces Campaign Finance Legislation
Ontario, Canada Premier Kathleen Wynne announced provincial legislation will be introduced in May banning corporate and union donations to political parties. The legislation will also limit contributions from individuals, limit spending for third-party advertising, and tighten political party spending and fundraising rules for by-elections.
“I believe it is important that these changes be in place or significantly underway before the June 2018 election, with initial changes legislated for Jan. 1, 2017,” iPolitics.ca reported Wynne as saying.
